Susan Delatour- Guest Artist 2018

Susan LePoidevin

Susan is known for her unique primitive fired sculptures  Recently she has been working on a series in clay entitled, “Crossing Bridges”.

Using the arch form as a constant in each of my pieces of art in this series creates a challenge as well as providing a focal point to enhance an idea or imagery.
